Guests to Sea Life Park Hawaii now have the chance to get face-to-fin with more of Hawaii’s native marine life at its newly renovated Touch Pool exhibit. The 3,000 sq. ft. exhibit features a one-of-a kind immersive experience at Hawaii’s marine conservation attraction.
The new attraction includes three areas, one of which showcases baby sharks and juvenile Hawaiian rays for the first time. Additionally, guests will be able to interact with baby honu (Hawaiian sea turtles) during hatching season. Other creatures that will be on display include shellfish, crabs, sea cucumbers, and octopi.
All animals featured in the Touch Pool will be native to Hawaiian waters and tide pools. Sea Life Park’s expert staff will educate guests about the various species, help them experience Hawaii’s ocean fauna in a more tactile way, and share the importance of conservation and respect for all marine life. The exhibit will be open during Park hours with scheduled experiences led by Sea Life Park educators throughout the day.
The Touch Pool project was designed and constructed by DeBiasi Pacific, an Oahu-based exterior environment company that specializes in pool and landscape design. The project was overseen by creative director Steve DeBiasi.
In celebration, this work week…. A child under 12 will receive free admission when accompanied by a paying adult.
